'Tis a sad day for this old blogger ~




It finally happened.
My good ol' faithful computer gave up the ghost last night.
I've been so, so sad all day.
For the past almost nine years I've been blogging and
used that wonderful old thing.
I had files on it from 2008!!!
I do have an external hard drive that I pray has been backed up
recently enough ~ so many photographs, images and files.

SO.
I need to be proactive and get busy generating some cash to buy a new tower.

I've decided to have a SALE in my Etsy store!
Everything is 25% OFF until further notice.
Simply type SAVE25 in the Coupon Code box when checking out
to receive 25% off your entire order.

Here is the link to my shop if you'd like to take a peek ~


Now, to get busy making some new goodies to list!!!










And the precious elf/fairy shoes below were created using my tutorial
by a sweet blog friend and artist Jeanne Marie!

I guess I'd better stop pouting and get busy!!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to ~
hugs and love,
Dawn

Making these sweet pockets a little more special!


I decided that my new pocket creations do not need to be naked!
SO...I've stuffed each and every one with some of my favorite treasures.

They've been filled with antique ephemera, antique photographs, vintage baby shoes,
 vintage jewelry bits and more.
They really do look so beautiful stuffed full!

So here are photos of these babies now!


















Now you can truly see their full potential!
You can find them all in my Etsy store now ~

Happy weekend angels!!!

hugs and love,
Dawn

A few new precious offerings!


It's funny how easily we are sucked into everyday life stuff.
You know, laundry, cooking, cleaning, blah...blah...blah.
Yes, these things are very necessary but of course
and it takes us away from creating and doing what we really love!
But real life is real life and it takes front and center of course...

I finally made my way back into the studio and finished a few new projects!
Four treasure pockets that are ready to be filled with YOUR treasures.
I decided not to fill these because I want who purchases them to fill them
with THEIR keepsakes and things that they love.

These pieces were meant for you to pull out those wonderful treasured photos,
sweet old baby shoes, grandmother's favorite pin, a beautiful poem,
your mother's gloves when she was a little girl...you get the picture!
Fill these pockets with treasures so that you can see them each and every day!!!
It will give you joy and always bring back precious memories!

They are all listed here in my Etsy shop ~


















I just received an order from my very favorite seam binding company!!!
I thought I'd share the colors I chose....
Should you place an order, please tell them that
The Feathered Nest sent you!!!



Sweet dreams angels ~




Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday precious friends!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

Beautiful October ~


I love this month!!! It always brings back so many precious memories.
Do you have a time of year that does that for you?
Fall is that time for me.

I dated my precious husband and was engaged in the fall...
I was pregnant with most of my babies in the fall,
just waiting to see their sweet faces!
Plus I've always loved the changing leaves and in Georgia
we have a beautiful show from the trees.

Yes, I know this leads to much colder weather and winter,
but for just a very short, wonderful time we have the gift of fall!










I have to share something quite personal with you.
I've been on a mission to drop a few pounds.
I started June 28th eating low carb, low sugar and healthy!
Well.....
after just 14 weeks eating this way I have dropped 29 pounds!!!!

I feel so, so much better you just wouldn't believe!
But I still have a ways to go until I reach my goal but it's just such
a wonderful thing to be able to make better choices and control your health!!

Here is a little comparison...now don't laugh.
The "before" photo a friend had called my name and startled me
so I look like a deer caught in headlights!!!
The "after" photo is from last week...I'm so excited!



And so....I need to get my fanny back into the studio!
I want to create a few single treasure pockets to sell and 
a few other ideas ~

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday precious friends!

hugs and love,
Dawn
